New Car Buying Center – The 2010 Volvo S80


The Volvo S80 has gone through a bit of a touch up for 2010. Starting with the interior there is the addition of a new steering wheel, aluminum dials, leather seats and door panels with matching stitching. Outside the S80 received a new grille with a larger iron-mark logo and a bit more bling on the air intakes, lower doors and under the taillamps.
